I'd contact Amazon UK customer support, but I'm wondering if the imperial eagle on the cover is causing it to be suppressed in certain markets.

If you are in the US, all ebooks in the .uk site will show as "not available for purchase." (British readers see the same thing on the US site.) Amazon wants people to shop on their own site.

Log out and browse as a Guest, and you will see the UK price.

(A UK shopper will see the same result on amazon.com.)

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook.)

Good luck! -- NJ

I'm seeing the same thing you are, contacting UK Author Central is probably your quickest path to an answer and resolution.
